Is there any directs bullet train from Shin-Osaka Station back to Tokyo?
Is it worth to buy a single one-way ticket just to experience the bullet train?
Hey there, me and my friend were planning to go on our first 10-Days trip to Japan in April.
A couple of questions:
1. Is it worth getting 7 days JR pass? We are planning to travel to Osaka/Kyoto (and Nara, tbc), spending about 4-5 days there and back to Tokyo.
2. Is there such a thing like Shinkansen 1-Day pass? (Noob question) I asked because while I see that there is a 1-day Tokyo pass but it does not seems to cover the trip to Haneda Airport
3. I know that it is better to get reserved seating for Shinkansen. Can that be done online and what is the time period that I can book it for the next day ride? Eg. I will be taking the train on Monday, can I book it on Sunday?
if last row is taken then u can't store at last row technically or else the person sitting last row cannot recline properly.
That's why try to bring as light as possible. Japanese style, once u go there u will see their small luggage.
TS, what u think about this news?
hi, 1st time go Tokyo.
plan to go Nikko, Hakone, Kawagoe day trip, is it too rush?
Day 1 - reach Haneda 9am,
see see look look Shinjuku,
check in hotel in Asakusa, explore surrounding area, sky-tree in the evening.
Day 2 - Nikko day trip, take earliest train 6:20am cause train station near hotel.
Day 3 - Hakone day trip.
Day 4 - Kawagoe day trip.
Day 5 - Mitaka Ghibhli museum, Odaiba day trip.
Day 6 - check out hotel.
check in hotel in Shinjuku,
Day 7 - explore Tsukiji market, Ginza, Roppongi
Day 8 - check out hotel.
evening flight from Narita.
a bit tricky non car seating legroom already not big
and if u put at legroom then the person in front if got any can't recline also.
Good pace. but seems that u skipping a few important attractions in Tokyo like Harajuku, Shibuya, Meiji Shrine, Akihabara? No Disneyland/sea as well?
For day trip i will recommend Kamakura instead of Kawagoe.
Hakone is fine for day trip but just that part of the appeal of Hakone is onsen which hard to do in day trip
